Theres’ more to having a catch than having a catch

There’s more to having a catch with your kids than just having a catch. It’s a time when you have their undivided attention. It’s your chance to open up a line of communication that will last a life time. As your kids get older, it will become more difficult for you to create an environment where they will open up to you. You must create one while they are young.

As you toss the ball back and forth, spend most of the time talking about something other than baseball. Find out what happened in their life today. Set the tone. Get them to talk, to open up. Engage with them. Show them you are interested in them and are there to listen. When they get older, they’ll always know that they can talk to you about their problems, concerns, or issues over something as special as “having a catch.”
